I have often said that when it comes to our homes these days it is not that our homes are too small rather our lives are too big.
I am just being diplomatic.
The truth is people have way too much stuff. Unnecessary stuff.
I understand that we are creatures of habit and form strange attachments to our stuff but really, do we honestly need all that stuff!?
Get rid of stuff. Donate the stuff.
If you haven’t used it lately, i.e. 6 months to 2 years, then you don’t need it.
I will never recommend the use of rubber storage bins, they only exacerbate the problem.
Take a picture. Buy yourself a 2 terabyte external hard drive and store it there. Then get rid of the stuff.
It is a fallacy if you think your kids will want this stuff.
Garages are for cars not stuff.
PS. Can you tell I have been very busy staging/editing homes lately!
